Child Labour (Brazil)


Children workers in northeastern Brazil, near the city Bahia, sit and listen to a lesson after working in the fields of a sisal plantation and 'rope' producing farm. Thousands of children in Brazil work in tea, sugar and sisal plantations as bonded servants - part of a continental wide problem of child labour and indentured servitude which plagues South America, despite regional efforts by governments, such as the Brazilian, to stamp out this human tragedy.

Las imágenes de los niños en la cotidianidad son preciosas, especialmente cuando sus condiciones de vida son tan difíciles.
Te recomiendo que visites otras imágenes tomadas por los niños mismos, en Cali, Colombia.
